UTPA is now a member of the National Student Exchange (NSE). NSE provides study away opportunities for either a semester or a year at any one of over 200 U.S. colleges and universities stretching from Hawaii to Maine (as well as a few in the Caribbean islands). Studying away at another U.S. institution provides students with opportunities to experience new places and people as well as take courses that support and complement their academic work at UTPA. It also looks great on a student's professional resume. In most instances UTPA students can study away by paying their regular UTPA tuition, which allows most scholarships, grants, and financial aid packages to remain intact. Additionally, students typically take courses away that fit into their UTPA degree plans. For more information, please visit the NSE website at and contact UTPA's NSE Coordinator, Dr. Christopher Keller, at The priority deadline for students considering studying away in fall 2013 is February 22. Students who apply after this deadline may still be able to study away in fall 2013, though the chance of getting placed at the institution of their choice decreases.
